Rolland & Galarreta Ribera del Duero

Rolland & Galarreta Ribera del Duero

The Tempranillo and Merlot grapes are grown in some of the highest vineyards in the region, up to 915 metres above sea level; here they experience cool breezes and have a long ripening period. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for about 10 months before final blending; about 15% of the blend is Merlot, which adds colour and flavour complexity. Aromas of cinnamon, lavender, and black cherry lead to a smooth-textured, concentrated and fleshy palate that shows elegance and silky tannins.
